    Email to Mac

    Have all of you taken the time to write Mac an email? I emailed him and got a pretty swift response back already. Here's what I wrote:

    Coach Mac,

    I know that you are probably receiving a ton of emails from Cyclone
    nation, but I just wanted to take the time to thank you for everything
    that you have done here at Iowa State. I will never forget how you gave
    ISU a name in college football, from the Florida State game to the huge
    win against Nebraska in 2002.

    Thanks for all the great memories as a Cyclone fan, and I wish you the
    best of luck wherever you may end up in the future. We'll never forget
    you Mac!

    A Loyal Cyclone Fan


    He sent me back a pretty neat email about how he appreciates all of us fans and how our words have truly touched his heart during this hard time. Sure is a classy guy. I only wish that he could've had more success to stay at ISU.

    Re: Email to Mac

    From those who I have talked to, Mac has done a wonderful job of responding to messages that have been sent to him in the last week. Despite the pressures that have been placed upon him, the fact that he will take the time to respond to notes of encouragement and thanks says alot about Mac the person. While things may not have gone the way the he would have wanted, he is still a stand up guy. I wish him the best of luck in the future.

    No problem! C.John's right, Mac is incredibly responsive and upbeat, especially considering the circumstances.

    Re: Email to Mac

    I have thought it was Mac's time to step down since 2003, but I have always respected him as a man. This situation just shows what type of character he really is. I never thought it would be so hard to watch his resignation at the press conference.

    I thought about this last night...It was harder to watch Mac resign than it was to watch Johnny retire.

    Re: Email to Mac

    I sent him a quick email...I don't really expect a response but I wanted to let him know how much I appreciated his hard work, memories, class, etc.

    It was time to move on but it still hurts.

    He is probably incredibly relieved there is closure even though he probably wanted to remain as HC. Watching Mac shake hands with Pollard and praise him was the definition of class. I was almost expecting McCarney to put his arm around Pollard when Jamie started to tear up.

    Re: Email to Mac

    I emailed mac this afternoon also, I did not expect a reply, but he thanked me for my kind words. I doubt many other people in his situation would do the same. What a class guy, I feel sick this situation went so wrong.

    Forever a Mac supporter!
